So I've been doing research and I've been trying a alternate to slipknots Ernie Ball .011, .015, .018, .028, .038, .058 gauge strings. I found the closest you can get it. Because as you may already know. They're custom gauge, and i think we all know how the people in strings department at guitar center can be. So if you don't want to bother them by asking for six different strings and buying them all separately try using these

Ernie Ball 2620 Nickel 7-String Power Slinky Electric Guitar Strings

Sadly the only difference is the C# string is a 14 instead of a 15 but hopefully that won't make too much of a difference.

Just kind of ignore the 48 gauge and for the F# string start at 38 and go on from there.

Given that they mainly use Drop B, shouldn't you just find a set that you like. The Ernie Ball 2626 set seems fine for me with just a slight action adjustment. Damn near perfect, really, but as others have commented, that's subjective. Marc Okubo from Veil of Maya and Mike from Spineshank use Drop B as well, and without looking, I'm going to guess they run that tuning with a little different set of strings than Jim and Mick. Hell, even with E standard, people use 8 gauge strings, while some might use 13 gauge.
Guitars:
Squire Bullet Strat, Schecter Damien 6, Washburn WG-587 & RX10

bjgrifter It was really just for people who want to try to emulate Slipknot as much as possible down the string gauge This is just what i found that works. I don't like using .11's for drop b so i go with .13's form either Ernie Ball or D'Addario because when i use .11's i get nervous the string is too loose and it'll snap
